Our Story

The KoolKandle Co. was founded in 2020 but the idea was born long before this. It began by searching for candles which smelt really cool but were not very common. We soon realised these were impossible to find so decided to give it a go and make our own! There was a lot to learn about wax, wicks and fragrances but after weeks of testing we finally got there. One of the first fragrances tested was ‘Garlic Bread’ but it wasn’t as kool as we originally hoped. The few scents which made the cut can now be found in the "OG" range KOOL!

We made our first batch of candles and gave them to friends and family and the feedback was amazing. When the country went into a national lockdown in March 2020, we had the time to test more scents, design some cool labels and launch our online store to the public!

Soon after the KOOL range was launched, we were asked to create the same quality candles in more scents. The KLASSIC range was developed by blending floral, fruity and woody aromas and these have become very popular. With expanding into a new range we decided to offer wax melts and accessories too.

The future is bright as we grow and improve our products and ranges. We have plans to introduce reed diffusers, room mists and our KORE and KOLLECTION ranges.

Our recipe has been the same since day one; cool fragrances, natural soy wax, cotton-core wicks and sustainable packaging. We design, develop, handcraft, and send all our orders from our little workshop in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

Our Values

Being sustainable and eco-conscious is very important to us at The KoolKandle Co. so we maintain some kool values:

All our products are handcrafted and no automated machinery is used throughout the process.

We are concerned about the environment and that’s why we select carbon neutral suppliers where we can and are working towards offsetting our own carbon footprint with Carbonfund.org by the end of 2021.

Cruelty Free
None of our finished products or raw ingredients have been tested on any animals.

All our packaging has been carefully selected to be fully recyclable or biodegradable. We use multiple parcel sizes to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum. The fragrances used are either synthetic or essential oils as they contain the same aroma molecules. Some essential oils require extensive resources to produce a small quantity and come from endangered plants, so we do not use oils that are unsustainable to the environment.

Vegan Friendly
All our products are plant based and vegan friendly. The wax used in all of our candles is 100% soy and contains no chemicals or additives.
